Range Rover Evoque: Gradient release control (GRC)

With HDC activated, if the vehicle is stopped on a slope using the foot brake, GRC will become active (except in Terrain Response Sand program). It operates in all gears and in neutral position.

During a steep hill descent, when the foot brake is released GRC will automatically hold brake force for a short period before gradually releasing it, allowing for maximum control to be retained.

During an uphill start, a similar brake hold and gradual release is employed. This allows time for the driver to apply speed and allow the vehicle to move away smoothly.

Gradient Acceleration Control (GAC) and Hill Start Assist are not active while HDC is operating. GAC will limit vehicle acceleration on steep descents, allowing the driver to feel more in control

 Changing a fuse

Always turn off the ignition system and the affected electrical circuit, before replacing a fuse. Fit Land Rover approved replacement fuses of the same rating and type, or fuses of matching specification. Using an incorrect fuse, may result in damage to the vehicle's electrical system and

 Brake/clutch fluid check

Seek qualified assistance immediately if brake pedal travel is unusually long or if there is any significant loss of brake fluid. Driving under such conditions could result in extended stopping distances or complete brake failure. Brake fluid is highly toxic - keep containers sealed and out
